ABOUT

This is a Society for Blues musicians & fans to enjoy, support, encourage, and share their PASSION for all things Blues related past, present & future on the First Coast Jacksonville Florida!

STORY

Blues in Northeast Florida has an amazing history! Once a major stop on the historical Chitlin Circuit, almost 100 years later, many variations of Blues continues to dominate the Northeast Florida music scene. So why not join the First Coast Blues Society and help support the Blues in Northeast Florida. Membership brings many benefits. You will know about blues happenings throughout the metropolitan Jacksonville area, Northeast Florida and any major events beyond our borders! Especially if our local artists are traveling! You can contribute to our blues heritage through a broad range of volunteer activities, and share your musical talents during many of the monthly blues jams happening all over the city. Instead of hanging out in bars, you'll be hanging out with "blues buddies" (in bars). It's incredibly affordable!
